Boiled crabs - 1000

Yield: 4 servings

Measure Ingredient
2 eaches Lemons, quartered
4 eaches Small ears fresh corn
1 cup Salt
½ cup Ground white pepper
12 eaches Live blue crabs
8 eaches New red potatoes
4 eaches Small yellow onions
½ cup Ground red pepper
½ cup Ground black pepper

Fill a large (10-quart) stockpot one-third full with water. Add the lemons, potatoes, corn, onions, salt, and peppers. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Let boil for 10 minutes. Add the crabs, (if blue crabs are not available, substitute other small to medium crabs), cover, and return to boil. Once steam starts to escape from under the cover, let cook for 15 minutes. Turn off the heat and let sit, covered, for 10 minutes more. From Alex Patout's "Cajun Home Cooking" Published by Randon House Alex says, "Serves 2 Cajuns, 4 elsewhere." He writes, "We like to lay out the crabs and vegetables on a large table covered with lots of paper and have a feast." Submitted By LAWRENCE KELLIE On 06-14-95
